Home : Oolong (Wu-long) Tea : King's Oolong : King's 409 Dark Ginseng Oolong 1st Grade

King's Dark Oolong 1st Grade (Small 5.3oz)

Ten Ren's King's Dark Ginseng Oolong First Grade consists of very fine oolong harvested during the premium seasons, spring and winter, and from the best area to grow oolong, the mountains of central Taiwan. The leaves are then blended with a touch of ginseng to create an incredible aftertaste. Each tea leaf is handpicked to ensure harvests of young terminal buds. The steeped tea has a light golden brown hue, roasted aroma with sweet undertones, the initial flavor of roasted chestnuts, and a strong, sweet and roasted aftertaste which lingers at the back of the throat.

The water used to steep this tea should be about 185-195F or 85-90C. Use about 2 teaspoons (3 g) of tea leaves for about every 5 ounces (150 mL) of water. A steeping time of about 3-5 minutes with more or less time is recommended depending on the desired concentration. As a rough guide, the higher the temperature of the water or the greater the amount of leaves used, the shorter the steeping time should be. For the ultimate enjoyment, a traditional Chinese Yixing teapot is recommended for loose oolong tea. The teapot should be half filled with leaves and initially steeped for 45 seconds to 1 minute with the steeping time increased by an additional 15 seconds for each successive steeping. The leaves may be steeped multiple times. Net tea weight is 5.3 ounces (150 g). Shipping weight is 0.67 lb with canister and box.
